The campus store is owned and operated by Coker College. The Student Union Building is adjacent to the Charles W. and Joan S. Coker Library-Information-Technology Center and the Margaret Coker Lawton Music Building.

We often have sales, contests, and other special events in the bookstore. Make sure to follow us on social media so you may take advantage of these offers. You can find the Coker Bookstore on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat.

One of our top priorities is to be mindful of affordability of and access to course materials for all students. We have worked diligently to lower costs and provide a variety of formats so students have many options when securing course materials.

  • The price comparison tool on our website makes it easy to compare our prices with the online marketplace. Prices from our store along with a variety of other online vendors appear on one convenient page. Students may then choose the purchase option that best meets their needs.
  • We have a partnership with a third party vendor who provides digital content downloadable on any device, in addition to our used and new print books. Students also are often able to rent books in the store, offering significant savings.
  • Purchases in the bookstore may be made using cash, credit card, debit card, check, and financial aid.
  • We have year round buyback for students. Once exams are over, if you no longer need a print textbook, bring it back to the bookstore for cash. We will let you know how much cash we can offer you. We also use an online site that shows ten other vendors and the cash offers they have for your particular book.
